Rory McCann was homeless before getting Game of Thrones role as The Hound
The actor revealed he had to steal food to survive
Actor Rory McCann is now famous for playing The Hound in HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones. However, his life was vastly different before Rory McCann bagged the role of The Hound. The actor shared that he was not only homeless but had to resort to stealing food before the show.
In the Game of Thrones Reunion Special, Rory McCann revealed that he was leading a very different life compared to now before he got the role of The Hound.
“Two years ago I was in a tent – literally in a tent and stealing food occasionally. Eventually I got a job and sorted myself out, but then suddenly I’m getting driven around in a nice car in the biggest and best show in the world; just shows how your fortunes can change. Amazing. I managed to go back there and pay my library fines,” Rory said.
Rory McCann was joined by Sean Bean aka Ned Stark as well as the rest of the Stark family. The cast shared several memorable moments from the time of filming.
The Game of Thrones Reunion Special will only be available with the Game of Thrones: Seasons One to Eight DVD box set.
